Hahn Loeser & Parks LLP is pleased to announce that R. Eric Gaum is the new chair of the firm’s Intellectual Property (IP) practice. Mr. Gaum (Cleveland, OH) will be supported by Hahn Loeser’s IP Leadership Council, comprised of partners Amanda H. Wilcox (Cleveland, OH) and Jeanne L. Seewald (Naples, FL). Hahn Loeser represents businesses of all sizes, in Ohio and throughout the world, in the procurement and enforcement of IP rights. The firm also provides patent, trademark, copyright, licensing, technology and due diligence counseling to a large base of national clients.
“Mr. Gaum is an exceptional attorney with a strong focus on best practices and innovative thinking,” said Lawrence E. Oscar, Hahn Loeser’s CEO & Managing Partner. “These qualities, in combination with his natural leadership abilities, will enable him to further grow Hahn Loeser’s thriving IP practice and continue to expand the quality, breadth and depth of IP services available to our clients. In addition, our IP Leadership Council, with its tremendous experience, will serve to ensure continued excellent client service.”While many mid-sized, Midwestern firms have attempted to build an IP practice piece-meal, Hahn Loeser has had a complete IP team – including IP attorneys, patent agents, trademark specialists, and support staff – for more than 10 years. The Group currently stands at more than 25 dedicated IP professionals, making it one of the largest in Ohio. Its team members have a diverse range of technical experience, with most having had prior professional employment in a technical field or industry before joining the firm, and continue to actively participate in a variety of legal and technical associations outside of their day-to-day practice.
